    based on the components, that smells like a department store bike.

    Similar to a Foes?

    Well ya I guess they both have 2 wheels. That's a department store piece of junk. Don't walk away, run!

    Your kidding right?! He's kidding? Oh man, I hope he's kidding? A Foes?! Can somebody really know what a Foes is and NOT know that this bike poop? It's a joke, a cruel, mean joke... right? Hey, if you think this is like a Foes then I... ah, never mind... it's too easy...

    Well...

    Well the suspension design appears similar, that's all i said.

    Seems to me like the wheels alone are worth the price. Aluminum mag wheels, disc ready(though the frame is not). Pretty clean cable routing decent paint job but i think i'd trash the decals. And the derailleur might not last a season. But I might get this and swap out the shock and force a Fox 2" stroke RP3 up in that, probably jacking up the BB which is a good thing. I'll see if i can test ride it before i buy, but this looks like a good bike at a good price, no?

    wow... you really aren't kidding... okay, um,..really?
    In any other area (clothes, cars, women, dogs. etc..) this isn't that important, but with bikes it is of the utmost of importance... buy a REAL BRAND bike!!! Seriously, it's not a good deal if the bike sucks, which this one completely does. Buy anything else...ANYTHING! May I suggest a few inexpensive, and real, brands to look at; Giant, Iron Horse, Marin, etc. If you're wanting to save a few dollars more, buy a used bike brand from here in the classified section.
    (p.s. go into a bike shop and start asking alot of questions!!!)

    No good Aluminum mags is RAD!!!

    There were a few models by Raleigh canada a few years back that had similar wheels. Crap-ola! They wound up on the WalMart brand "Millenium" also made by raliegh Canada. Complete bikes were going for lik $150 -$200. Way too much if you ask me.
